Watkins Glen, New York – July 1, 2019 – PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports won the sixth round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen in the LMP2 category.
The No. 52 PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA was piloted by Matt McMurry, Gabriel Aubry, and Eric Lux. Aubry captured the pole and started the race out front. Aubry dropped to second early on in traffic and the No. 38 Performance Tech Motorsports ORECA Gibson of Kyle Masson, Cameron Cassels, and Andrew Evans led the majority of the first half of the race.
Two GTLM competitors made contact with the No. 38 Performance Tech Motorsports ORECA Gibson, who was able to continue the race, but allowed the No. 52 PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA to take the victory by 20 laps and finish 10th overall. After winning at Mid-Ohio, this was the second consecutive victory for PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports in the LMP2 class.
Next for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, is Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for next Sunday's Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix presented by Acura. IMSA Radio also will have live coverage throughout the weekend on IMSA.com and RadioLeMans.com, with race coverage airing on SiriusXM Radio.

"Another win, this time at the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen! The car was great all weekend, so good that we were almost able to compete with some DPi's. It was a fun race against Performance Tech, and I'm sorry to see their race end the way it did. They put up a good fight but ultimately, we came away with the win. Looking forward to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park next week!"
Gabriel Aubry – Driver
“Extremely happy to get the win here at the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. This is a race with a lot of history and I’m happy to be a part of that. My teammates Matt and Eric did a great job and the guys at PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports gave us a great car.”
Eric Lux – Driver
"Wow, this feels great. I don't know how many times I've done this race but more than a few and it sure feels good to finally be on the top step here. This is one of the best tracks in the world. This IMSA racing is most competitive. Even though we'd like more cars in our category, managing traffic out there with that many other cars and classes is a constant dogfight. To be on the top step required a great job from everybody. That's what we did today. Matthew and Gabriel did a super job, too."
